Assumption Buster of Tinder’s Swipe Gesture

Hello guys, I recently brought a membership subscription from Interaction Design Foundation, In that, they have given a task of UX assumption of using Tinder swipe gestures impact on the type of handers (Right and Left).

From the problem statement, what can be the possible problems that might face with the swipe left gesture?

First, we see the basic fundamentals of swiping gesture animation.

Swipe Right: You liked that person and stand a chance to get matched.

Swipe Left: You rejected the person and lose a chance to get matched.

The points should be covered in the UX case study,

Value proposition

– Find a date, Build a romantic relationship easily and have fun

Benefits to the user:

– Social connection, self-esteem, discovering, be amazed, reducing the stress about finding a date, reducing vulnerability, anonymity, Type of fun

Ideal experiences:

– Match with a person the user likes, meets, and easily connect

  • Find people the user finds interesting and attractive.

Which other users are left out of this?

– Shy users, people who don’t feel comfortable with their bodies and some people who lack interest in having relationships.

  • What would annoy users? To not have any match, not find any interesting people, to swipe wrongly on a person they were interested in and can’t undo it. Same vice-versa.

These are the points to be covered in the buster UX, But my point is as the research made by me states that in many cultures and religions, the right action is considered as a positive impact on activities, and swiping left is considered a negative impact on the environment.

In my country India there is still a taboo when we like to start new things or buy new products our elders say that “Use the right hand to give or hand over the products or Use the Right foot first to step into the new property or asset”. But still, it will be varied on the different perspective of people like right-handed people feels right good and left-handed people feel left good so it totally depends on the people’s nature.

Thank you guys for reading my work and feel free to correct me and share your thoughts well on comments about the gestures.
